The "Crippled KFC Chicken" Statue by Harry Bliss

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and the city of Louisville, KY have a problem and it's called Kentucky Fried Chicken. Louisville is the headquarters for Yum! Brands, which owns the KFC franchises.

New Yorker cartoonist Harry Bliss designed the above 5 1/2 foot tall bloody chicken statue to show the inhumane treatment that chicken suppliers use. PETA petitioned to put the statue on public display. Louisville Metro Government denied their application.

PETA says this violates their first amendment rights. An appeal was filed yesterday.

Dan Klepal of the Louisville Courier-Journal has the story.
